LONG ISLAND TALENT AGENCY TO PAY PENALTIES AND
RESTITUTION TO WOULD-BE MODELS AND ACTORS
Attorney General Spitzer today announced a settlement with The New Faces Development Center which was cited for making deceptive and exaggerated
claims about the services it provided to aspiring models and actors.
According to the settlement agreement New Faces, based in Hicksville,
claimed that it provided talent management services including industry
placement and training, and that it was highly selective in scouting,
screening and reviewing young people for potential as models and actors.
However, New Faces is not a modeling agency and rarely obtained modeling
or acting employment for its clients. It principally provided photographic
services and for an additional fee, posted photographic images on its
website, Gigacomps.com, presumably to promote its clients to industry
"This company appealed to the desires of children, teenagers and
young adults to become stars. Parents believed New Faces
misrepresentations that their children would have lucrative futures as
working models or actors," Spitzer said. "Model and acting development
centers and photo studios should only promise what they can actually deliver."
New Faces "talent scouts" are alleged to have approached
consumers, usually children, teenagers and young adults, in public places
such as the Roosevelt Field shopping mall, Jones Beach and concert halls.
The scouts led youngsters to believe that they had been scouted because
they have a "look" that made them likely to succeed as models
and actors. They were told that they would incur no costs and should contact
a "Director" at New Faces to schedule an evaluation.
According to the allegations, those who met with a Director were led
to believe that only a few of those interviewed were actually offered
an opportunity with the company, that they must sign a "photo shoot
agreement" that same day, and pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars
to get started.
In truth, New Faces was not highly selective about whom it scouted or
signed to photo shoot agreements. New Faces sometimes even extracted additional
money from its clients by directing them for additional services to its
affiliated companies, including Gigacomps.com, Vanique and Nijah Productions.
Prior to the settlement announced today, the Attorney Generals Office,
the Better Business Bureau and the Nassau County Department of Consumer
Affairs had received approximately 55 complaints against New Faces.
Under the settlement, New Faces will pay the State $75,000 in penalties
and $2,000 in costs, and up to $500,000 in restitution to aggrieved consumers.
New Faces also has agreed make changes to its business practices and to
comply fully with New York State Law. The company will retain relevant
records for inspection by the Attorney Generals office.
Those who wish to file a claim for restitution should file a complaint
with the Attorney Generals office, together with proper supporting
documentation, by March 5, 2006, by contacting. the Attorney Generals
complaint hotline at 1-800-771-7755.
The investigation was conducted by Juan Merchan, Assistant Attorney General
in Charge of the Nassau Regional Office, with the assistance of investigators
Angel Rivera and Paul Matthews.
